The Most Popular Types of Bongs at Your Denver Marijuana Dispensary

June 13, 2018

When it comes to finding the perfect way to smoke the weed you buy from your favorite Denver dispensary, you have hundreds of options to choose from. There are vape pens, pipes, papers, desktop vaporizers, and, of course, bongs. Though the bong has long been a symbol of tokers everywhere, technology has changed since they became so mainstream. Before you buy the first bong you find, consider your options. We want to make sure you enjoy your smoke sesh, so here are a few of the most common bong types to help you find the right glass.

Fruit Bong

If you’re feeling industrious or simply want to try something completely new, make your own bong out of your favorite fruit. Most people see great results with apples, oranges, and hard veggies like carrots. Though these bongs are more similar to traditional pot pipes, the experience will give you a unique flavored smoking experience. Keep in mind, you can always turn it into a proper bong by creating a large enough chamber in the apple to add water or even apple juice.

Simple Straight Bong

If you’re just getting started with bong use, you may want to stick to the basics. The straight glass bong is what people have been smoking out of for decades, if not centuries, and for good reason: it works! The bong is made out of borosilicate glass, making it both heat resistant and incredibly durable. The glass won’t hold onto residue or chemicals, making it easy to clean and when the bowl is filled with water, you’re in for a smooth hitter, each and every time.

Ice Bongs

Ice bongs are a unique twist on the standard water bong. Instead of using room temp water, you fill the down-pipe with ice. The result is a cool and comfortable hit that many people report as causing less throat irritation. Once the ice melts, you can either continue using the bong as a normal water bong or dump the water and refill it with more ice.

Plastic and Acrylic Travel Bong

If you like to take your equipment with you on the go, you may want to invest in an acrylic travel bong. These devices are made out of durable and lightweight plastic that is virtually shatterproof under normal conditions. Best of all, these bongs are relatively cheap, making it the perfect backup smoker for tokers worried about breaking their fancy glass bong. Keep in mind that the plastic is prone to scratching and those scratches can hold onto residue, making the bong hard to clean. Take care to use soft scrub brushes when cleaning these rigs and clean them often to prevent buildup.
